• Good News For Trish Stratus Fans
On last night’s episode of RAW, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus had a face-off with Alexa Bliss (accompanied by Mickie James).
Trish talked about her WWE Evolution PPV match with Alexa Bliss, but then Alexa challenged Trish to a tag team match at WWE Evolution instead of a singles match.
This led to WWE Hall of Famer Lita coming out and teaming up with Trish to take out Alexa & Mickie.
So instead of Trish Stratus vs. Alexa Bliss and Lita vs. Mickie James, we’re going to get a tag team match at WWE Evolution: Trish Stratus & Lita vs. Alexa Bliss & Mickie James.
You can watch this segment below:
In a backstage interview on RAW, Trish & Lita revealed their tag team name: ‘Besties Best For Business’.
According to the No Holds Barred podcast, Trish Stratus’ in-ring return won’t be a one-time deal. She is expected to have multiple matches in this run.
With that being said, it’s safe to say that after WWE Evolution, Trish might work the Survivor Series 2018 PPV and the Women’s Royal Rumble 2019 match as well.
Below is the updated match-card for WWE Evolution PPV:
– RAW Women’s Championship Match: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Nikki Bella
– Trish Stratus & Lita vs. Alexa Bliss & Mickie James
– NXT Women’s Championship Match: Kairi Sane (c) vs. Shayna Baszler
– Mae Young Classic Final: Io Shirai vs. Toni Storm
